Through a partnership with Santa Clara County and the city of Mountain View, a free COVID-19 Mobile Testing Unit will be available on Monday (May 25) for a one-day, pop-up testing event. The mobile testing unit will operate 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Rengstorff Park Aquatic Center (201 S. Rengstorff Ave.). The testing is free to everyone and does not require any insurance, appointments, documentation or pre-registration. Drive-ups, bike-ups or walk-ups are all welcome.
Because more businesses are reopening, the Santa Clara County Department of Public Health is encouraging more people to get tested. People over 60, people with pre-existing health conditions and people who have been around someone who has tested positive, should continue to get tested. In addition, anyone who has frequent contact with members of the public through healthcare work, food services (restaurants and grocery) or any other essential services, is encouraged to get tested monthly. Anyone who works in the long term healthcare or skilled nursing facility is encouraged to be tested every two weeks.
